Some Good Things

See below for this week's Google Earth Challenge!

Aidan modelling his aunt's new Fat Boy Harley.

Today was his first day of pre-K! He loved it and had a great day.

My sister and her husband spent last weekend in North Carolina riding something called "The Tail of the Dragon". It's some road in the mountains that has like 300 twists and turns within 20 miles (or something like that). She brought me back 24 bottles of my most favorite drink in the WORLD - Cheerwine! They don't sell it here and everytime she goes up to the mountains, she always remembers to bring me some. I love my sister and I love me some Cheerwine!!!!

Nectar of the gods! XXOOXXOOXX

I love Cheerwine, too! And always bring back some cases of it when we get to NC or VA. They are supposed to sell it in Pensacola where my son lives, but we have never been able to find it there.

I've been tempted to order some online, but the cost of S&H always stops me. Why, oh why don't they sell it down here???

Love knowing I'm not the only one who loves the stuff!

He is such a cutie! I'm glad he had fun at school. It's horrible to drop them off when they're crying and you know they'll be miserable.

I've never tried Cheerwine but I'm going to be on the lookout for it now LOL

Can you make wine from your guavas?

I've never heard of that drink before. Now are you going to gobble them all up quickly or limit yourself and stretch them out as long as possible?

Your little guy is adorable!

Lisa, I ration myself. 1 bottle a day. But others in the house aren't capable of such self restraint. I figure I'll be lucky to get 10 out of the 24.

Ann, Yup, he didn't cry and neither did I! In fact, he barely said Bye to me and my Mom!! I suppose I could make wine out of the guavas, but I don't know how. I save them up and give them to my sister to make jam out of. YUM!

Never had Cheerwine! Sounds like you have a great sister!

Last time we were in North Carolina we started at the South end of the Dragon's Tail and made it up to the highest point...By then the sun was setting and we didn't think it would be as much fun in the dark...Next time we'll start off earlier...It's a wonderful ride with great scenery

I've heard of Cheerwine, but never tried it...Guess I should have...What does it taste like?
